Lok Satta Party President and legislator Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan has requested the Speaker, Mr. N. Kirankumar Reddy to permit him to move a resolution in the Assembly on the repeal of a section of the Presidential Order of 1975.

 

Section 14 (f) of the Presidential Order issued under Article 371-D of the Constitution has fuelled regional passions in Andhra Pradesh on the misapprehension that Hyderabad will be treated as a free zone for police officials.

 

“Any amendment or repeal of a section of the Presidential Order issued under Article 371-D of the Constitution is entirely within the power of the President and Government of India.”

 

In a letter to the Speaker, Dr. JP said the repeal of Section 14 (f) of the Andhra Pradesh Public Employment (Organization of Local Cadres and Regulation of Direct Recruitment) Order, 1975 will make it clear that the scheme of local cadres will apply to the police officers as defined in clause (b) of Section 3 of the Hyderabad City Police Act, 1348F.

 

Dr. JP requested the Speaker to allow the matter to be entered in the list of business immediately by waiving the notice period of ten days.
